Ted Cruz quits

Say it isn’t so!

The poll just released for West Virginia with Trump at 61% may have been as important as the sweep in Indiana.

Maybe he’ll get a juicy chairmanship in the Senate

Bill Kristol can now join Glenn Beck in the suicide chamber.

Time for RNC chairman Priebus to hold a news conference and say “if you can’t support Trump, don’t come to the convention in Cleveland”

The alternative is to repeat the 1872 election and split the party apart. Conservatives invading the Democratic Party might not be all bad. I’m still holding to my prediction Trump will not be running in November.

    Kasich has thrown in the towel too.

    The lack of congratulatory statements by prominent Republicans is deafening

      The ‘big wigs’ of the party are probably having a conference call to see who can find their own butt with both hands the quickest. Seriously though, I’m sure they have all got their fingers in the air (or up their backsides) and trying to determine what the party ‘stand’ is going to be, so they can get everyone ‘on message’.

      A no win scenario for those powerbrokers: Option 1: they can endorse a guy they have spent months trashing and trying to thwart — but if Trump then crashes and burns in the election he could take down the Senate and House majorities with him. Option 2: If they continue to oppose their own nominee then they become Whig party 2.0 and we truly are reduced to one party state (although it can easily be argued we have been a one party state, with two tents, for decades).

        There were rumors about a contingency plan to hand over the GOP to Trump and then leave and create a new party. Trump doesn’t have an organizational to actually control the Republican Party.

        Given the degree that the two parties have written into law a duopoly of two political parties, I have trouble seeing how a New Republican Party can get up to speed by November

          It can’t. Guaranteed. It can change the laws to fund primaries for more than the incumbent parties, and to fund party conventions for more than the two incumbent parties by the 2020 election… but remember what they said for the last month, these are private parties not subject to collusion or anti-trust the way other organizations are… but they are free to get tax subsidies.

      I was hoping someone would offer him the Postmaster General spot so that he would throw in the towel earlier.

      I am starting a rumor that he was actually holding out for the role of Presidential Food Taster… One can never be too careful with Oswald’s buddy from Texas still on the loose. lol

    Hillary should be endorsed by the FBI – using handcuffs.

    I hope this is a wonderful opportunity for America. I hope that Trump beats Hillary. I detest what the political machinery has done to America. John Kasich – your office called.

  4. Fred Stiening says:

    With it clear Trump will be the nominee, will that affect the Democratic party to abandon Hillary? It’s improbable, but not too late.

    It will be interesting to see which prominent Republicans endorse Trump in the next 24 hours.

    The NY Times political writers are totally freaking out.

    Pass the popcorn.
